Body filler applied. Josh is taking tomorrow off, so block sanding may have to wait till Tuesday.

I always try to fill over bare metal. Wanted to try sanding, but not cured enough yet. Guess it'll have to wait till Tuesday.

So I have been doing it backwards....I have been lightly priming then using putty or body filler......I was worried about surface rust....guess after all the sanding on the body filler I would not need to worry about the surface rust! Thanks!

Great restoration progress so far Daniel, and looks like you have everything under control as you work through it.

Scott, it is best to fill directly onto clean bare metal, but it will be ok over primer. That's why I did the electrolysis to get the bulk of the crud off, then waited till I could sandblast the frame and body fill on the same day, before flash rust could come into play. If exposed metal flashes some now, it won't matter, as I will be sanding all down again, then immediately spraying primer over it all. Once I get it under primer & cured well, I'll wrap the frame in an old bed sheet & put away until I get more parts ready for paint.

That's going to be one nice frame, Daniel. Sorry about the play time interruption.

There are starters available, but will have to wait till I can sell some stuff to pay for it. Kinda overextended at the moment, plus Christmas coming.

As busy as my day was, I stole a little time before lunch to get the frame under primer. To speed the sanding, I cheated & used my belt sander to do the flat sides. Man was that the trick....finished in a couple minutes each side. Then I finished the sides with my orbital sander, did the tops of the sides by hand, then shot the primer.
